Make the YMCA part of your legacy through a gift to the Endowment Fund

Donors who make planned or current gifts to the Endowment Fund are invited to join our Heritage Club, a group of highly engaged individuals who have committed long-term support by giving directly to the YMCA Endowment Fund or including the YMCA in their estate plans. The goal of the YMCA of San Francisco’s Endowment Program is to provide perpetual funding for the Association’s annual programs assuring YMCA programs remain open to all regardless of one's ability to cover registration fees.
